And I turn back, and lift up mine eyes, and look, and lo,
four chariots are coming forth from between two of the mountains, and the
mountains are mountains of brass.
In the first chariot are red horses, and in the
second chariot brown horses,
and in the third chariot white horses, and in the fourth
